We own a SOB 5'er and are looking at Wildcats and Silvervbacks. Wife retieres in a few years and we want to hit the road for a couple 2-3 month trips a year as well as the normal camping we do. Our SOB is 2 years old and I've modded it and fixed the few issues it had when new. I sometimes feel like I will have to start all over again and while I've had pretty good luck with our last two trailers I know it's a gamble on getting another one. There's just enough stories out there about the guy getting the lemon that it makes me slightly nervous about getting another one. If it weren't for the fact that we want a larger 5'er to make traveling easier I wouldn't take the risk.

Don't get me wrong...
We love the 'finished look' of our Wildcat and it is Very comfortable.

IMHO.... I think you will find that pretty much "all" RV manufacturers are getting away with the same practice .

We as consumers are the only ones that can change this by being more demanding and critical in our assessment of Recreational Vehicles .

Wiring practices leave a lot to be desired. Had to fix a number of wiring issues on my 36 RLTS. Good news is that I now know the electrical system.
